  1. Hi Jborela, Thank you for stopping by my blog and enjoying the photo of my baby boy, PJ. Thanks for asking if you could use this photo but I'd really would not like it to be used on any other blogs. It is a personal photo of mine and I own the rights to it, so if other people take it, I have no control over what happens to the photo. Thank you so much for asking first! I really appreciate that. Now you've opened up an interesting topic and I need to do some research to protect my photos. Thanks for the heads up!
